The acrid assault of air polution, judged by many the worst in the world, takes an increasing toll on the city’s health as 11,00 tons of gaseous waste spews out daily.

Motor vehicles, running largely on leaded gas, account for 70% of the pollution; most of the 30,000 factories burn low-grade sulfurous fuel.

Efforst to increase public transportation include reviving a nearly extinct trolley -car system and expanding a fleet of trolebuses powered by overhead electrical wires.

Daring weekend skaters here hitch trolebus joyrides, a dangerous and illegal practice.
